Baseball legend Jose Canseco will be texting a little slower from now after accidentally blowing his middle finger completely off of his left hand.

Apparently he was cleaning his gun and didn't realize it was loaded.  I am not a firearms safety expert, but here's a tip:  ALWAYS CHECK TO SEE IF YOUR GUN IS LOADED BEFORE YOU CLEAN IT.

Doctors made an attempt to reattach what was left of the finger earlier tonight, but he will never have complete use of it.
